Flinders University is leading the SMART Ageing CRC bid. Commencing in 2018, it's an ambitious 10-year $70m research initiative to establish a multi-state research program led by the needs of the community care and aged sector, and involves consumers, providers, funders and universities. At this stage, we are developing the specific research focus areas for the CRC programs, under guidance of our founding industry and university partners.

Gamma Vaccines Pty Ltd

Headquartered in Canberra, Gamma Vaccines Pty Ltd was established to solve one of the great challenges in infectious disease - the development of a “universal” cross-protective influenza virus vaccine. In addition, the company has a pipeline of vaccine opportunities aimed at preventing other globally important respiratory diseases, such as bacterial pneumonia – a common secondary infection that often follows infection with influenza. Although focussed on the development of vaccines for human use, it is seeking near market opportunities to exploit its technology platform for veterinary applications, including a novel avian influenza (AI) vaccine for preventing bird flu outbreaks in poultry. Gamma Vaccines intends to achieve its development and commercialization goals by engaging third party research providers, seeking government grants and partnering and/or licensing its technology as key milestones are achieved.

ICT International Australia

ICT International’s unique family of digital sensors and data loggers have been developed to measure key plant and soil parameters for the advancement of plant and soils research, to address physiological limitations, to water availability, climate change, evaluation of plant genetics, breeding programs or fundamental understanding of plant function. They have been installed to measure plant water use (sap flow), plant water potential (psychrometer), soil moisture and soil water potential to determine the effects of climate and environmental change across the world including; the Brazilian rainforeststhe “world’s tallest trees” in Californiamine site rehabilitation in Australia and Perugreenhouse tomato production in Australia and the effects of elevated CO2 on plant water use and hydraulic conductivity.

Mr Jeff Kasparian
Programs Manager

I am about to commence a role as Programs Director with the recently announced iMOVE CRC, after working extensively throughout the bid application process.

My career has involved facilitating, creating and working in the collaborative space between academia and industry, - and mostly in the wireless communications space.  I am particularly interested in hearing and sharing ideas about how to facilitate successful collaboration in such a 'large' environment - 46 organisations (federal and (5) state governments, large and small industry, academia), $230m program over 10 years.

My interests extend from the general to the specifics of how and what processes are set up to support success and I'm keen to network with others about that.
